I stayed at Aloft sukhumvit soi 11 for one night. The hotel had undergone a substantial decorative effort and had free wi-fi and apple desktops to use. The bar seemed quite nice as well and a DJ was pumping out iconic eighties tracks when I visited. The pool and gym were bright and well equipped as well as the games room and 'chill out' area located at the rear of the ground floor behind reception.
The room was equally stylish with bright colours. I purchased an urban suite as opposed to the Chic Suite, if you can work out the difference from the website between the two then good for you, because I can't tell the difference. I just know the urban is more expensive. I liked the IPod docking station and all the little details that were provided. The prices for the minbar seemed reasonable in comparison to other hotels. I also liked the high position of my room with a decent view over Bangkok.
The best thing about this hotel is the location, I quite enjoy soi 11 and enjoy a night out there in the evening. It does not get as 'dodgy' as other parts of sukhumvit as the evening wears on and has some really nice restaurants and places to grab a cocktail or beer. An appealing aspect to staying at the hotel is a free pass to Bed Supperclub just opposite. When we went there an hour or so before closing, we were stung 500 baht for entry, I couldn't be bothered arguing at the time so I just paid, apparently it was a 'special night' (i.e. some bestudded young woman of European descent on the decks).
Overall this is one of the more exciting hotels in the area from this category and seems rather unique and stylish (having stayed at Dream & 4 points by Sheraton). It's like the best backpacker accommodation I have ever stayed at on steroids. I was considering staying again when I visited last week but I had a hire car and know that they don't have parking.
